This show was recorded live at the Illustrato.rs Lineup show at the Mall Galleries, London on the 4th May.Dan Berry spoke to Richard Short, Karrie Fransman and Posy Simmonds about their work, their approach and the challenges in creating long-form work.

A word of warning though - this was recorded in an art gallery, so the acoustics were terrible. The recording is actually better than the live sound on the day though. Big echoey white walls may be great for hanging art, but they aren't so good for reproducing those soft intimate Make It Then Tell Everybody tones that you've grown accustomed to.
